  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A case of the carotid body tumor in a 23-year-old female is described. The tumor is known to have existed for at least three years before surgical treatment was perfor-med in our clinic. From the operative fin-dings the neoplastic tissue was found to be closely adherent to the wall of the carotid arteries but the tumor was completely extir-pated without ligation of the arteries.

The histopathologic changes exhibited the typical structure of carotid body tumor, and the chromaffin cells were successfully demo-nstrated in the tissue.
